Her addiction was causing daily hallucinations and paranoia
In a recent interview with iNews, Fergie opened up about her struggles as a meth addict.
“It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things,” she added. “I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny.”
In addition to seeing random bunnies, she constantly worried that the FBI and CIA were watching her. “I remember thinking: ‘If I walk outside, and the SWAT team’s out there, I was right all along. But if they’re not out there, then it’s the drugs making me see things and I’m going to end up in an institution. And if it really is the drugs, I don’t want to live my life like this any more, anyway.’ I walked out of the church; obviously there was no SWAT team, it was just me in a parking lot. It was a freeing moment.”
“The drugs thing, it was a hell of a lot of fun… until it wasn’t.” Previously, Fergie spoke out about her past drug abuse to Time, referring to it as “the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with.”
On a more down-to-earth note, Fergie is also getting her closet organized. “I’m going through an evolution. I’m completely cleaning out my closet. I’m purging, because I saw that show ‘Hoarders.’ I had a sweatshirt from sixth grade, and I’m going, ‘Why do I hold on to this?’
